About the Property

An exciting opportunity to acquire a prestigious Victorian residence plus detached holiday cottage located in one of the most favoured coastal destinations in Snowdonia.

Llys Andreas is a handsome and spacious 7 bedroom residence (with 5 en suites plus family bathroom) in an idyllic setting with sea views, generous gardens and a one bedroom detached holiday bungalow all sitting in approximately 1.7 acres. In walking distance of the beach, mountains and all village amenities including pub and restaurants, it even boasts its own private forest and private foot bridge across the delightful River Ysgethin which babbles alongside.

It has been sympathetically modernised and refurbished to the highest of standards throughout whilst maintaining all its original charm and character and includes fireplaces in abundance, bay windows, a bespoke oak and granite kitchen and three reception rooms. Outside there are lawned gardens with tiled and patio verandas for alfresco dining. Beautifully presented with underfloor heating, contemporary en suites and bathrooms, the renovation has successfully combined all modern comforts with the period features expected for such a property.

The charming detached holiday cottage sitting in its own garden has a spacious lounge/diner, double bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. It benefits from dedicated parking and a hot tub.

A much cherished spacious family home for many years Llys Andreas is now a highly profitable holiday rental business (that currently easily exceeds the 2022 Welsh holiday let criteria of minimum 182 days occupancy to qualify for business rates) but would also be the perfect residence for those looking for a coastal home with opportunity for a supplemented income from the detached cottage or requiring accommodation for relatives and friends with limited mobility.
